Hypermedia and the Semantic Web

"On the one hand, the Semantic Web infrastructure should enable several features commonly found in systems developed within the hypermedia community that are currently missing on the Web. On the other hand, the development of the currently emerging Semantic Web infrastructure could directly benefit from the models, systems and lessons learned within the hypermedia community.

Based on the articles mentioned above, we identified around 30 features that have been grouped into the eight categories..."

"Within Open Hypermedia Research, the user interface is part of the application's functionality and is usually more or less ignored. Within other hypermedia application domains, such as temporal hypermedia [36,37], spatial hypermedia [51] and taxonomic hypermedia [57], the presentation and interactive behavior of hypermedia structures is more complex than the typical button-like behavior of navigational links, and is often tightly intertwined with the underlying semantics of these structures."

Down with hierarchies!
